Police in Davenport say a home invasion investigation Friday turned into a car chase and ended with a fatal traffic accident. Officers were called to the home invasion at 4:30 a.m. and learned the two male suspects fled the scene in a Jeep Cherokee driven by a female.
One of the suspects was identified as Travis Rush, a man wanted for a recent stabbing and other arrest warrants. Just after 7 a.m., police were checking an address that Rush was known to visit when the suspect Jeep was spotted. A squad car started to follow the Jeep, when the driver of the vehicle accelerated and attempted to allude the officers.
The Jeep crashed into a tree, killing the female passenger, identified as 21-year-old Sharnice Johnson of Davenport. The back seat passenger, Rush, was injured along with the driver, Pachino Hill. Hill is facing a number of charges including Homicide by Vehicle and Felony Eluding. Police say more charges will likely be filed against both Hill and Rush.
